Greetings from the Saturn of Glen Burnie Service Department. (I know what you’re thinking: Charleston one day, Glen Burnie the next; is there no end to the excitement? No, no there’s not.)

Yesterday Judge Emmet G. Sullivan of the United States District Court for the District of Columbia issued this show cause order in Adolph v. Gates, Civ. No. 09-135, a habeas action on behalf of a civilian confined in Kuwait with a view to court-martial proceedings. The United States’ filing is due 10 days after DOJ is served with Judge Sullivan’s order.

We previously discussed the habeas filing here. The petition itself is available here.

    No, we were thinking why would you ever buy a Saturn.

  2. Stella Goste says:

    Hey, I bought a used Saturn and drove it 100,000 miles around the US for 9 years with no issues until I crashed it into an SUV. That little plastic car gave up its life protecting me from serious harm.

    There you go see, a Saturn doesn’t last.

    On a different note:
    One of the three Writs had to go away? The first when Gates said no prosecution?
    Is there a reason, method, or interest in joining the two remaining Writs — they have the exact same issue?
